    West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    They're actually adding more green space by eliminating most of the parking and some of the streets in the Greek area. The "RC" buildings at the top are the new residential colleges, RC-A currently under construction, that front West End.

    I don't think any of them were killed by scooters.
  3. And the residents. Well, I guess it's not a windfall if you're the one shaking the tree.
  4. Looking at the permit application, it seems like they were really planning on modifying the existing structure, maybe they got in the walls and found it was a lost cause https://www.nashville.gov/Codes-Administration/Construction-and-Permits/ePAV-for-Permits/Permits-View.aspx?name=06c06fe7-9e87-4bb7-85f4-b0b685b55f37_CA-Permits-20171101_11184284_1.pdf

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    This is true of Nashville car operators too.
  6. I like them too, they just always seem half full when I jog by in the evenings while Double Dogs, Five Points, and M.L. Rose are slammed. Maybe they do a brisk lunch business.
  7. It's too bad they couldn't include some residential density. I worry a bit that the Charlotte corridor around there is a little oversaturated with restaurant/retail for not having much foot traffic. Already recently Flipburger, Beer Pale, and Salt & Vine have closed, plus Bajo Sexto a bit futher down. Farmburger and the juice place never seem to be a healthy amount of busy either and the older buildings across from Richland Park are half empty.

    Unless I'm looking at it wrong, it also seems like the driver-side half of the bus would have to load in traffic rather than curbside.
  9. I hope metro makes sidewalks on James/63rd in that area a priority, make a connection to West Park.

    I bike the 51st ave 2-way lane almost every day and I really hope they don't do something like that on Belmont. Cars turning right across the lane from side streets almost never look for bikes coming from the right and I think Belmont, with increased pedestrian traffic, the hill and a less-straight road would be even worse, visibility-wise. The current Belmont situation is better than a two-way, IMO. Also, so far Metro's approach to entering and exiting opposite-side bike lanes seems to be "good luck!"
  11. I hope they keep the mural on the side of Nashville Cash & Carry
  12. This is a stupid detail that probably nobody but me cares about but they should change the layout of the parking lot so that the driveways point towards the building. Playing hockey requires hauling around a giant bag of stuff and the layout in that render would require you to walk around or through all the parked cars to get to the entrance. Basically every grocery and big box store has figured this out but they got it wrong at Ford Ice in Antioch and it annoys me that they're going to do it again.

    Nah, Bart Durham is very recognizable.

    I'm not in any way qualified to evaluate it but most of the transit folks I follow online seem to think Musk is all hype and no substance in this area. Example: https://pedestrianobservations.com/2017/12/15/elon-musks-ideas-about-transportation-are-boring/

    I wonder if Bird is even able to collect and store them all. They outsource the daily collection and charging to people that sign up for it and get paid on a per-scooter basis. I wouldn't be surprised if Bird's Nashville employee presence is just one or two people taking delivery of new scooters and getting them out on the street.
